Germany sends IRIS-T launchers to Ukraine


Germany has provided Ukraine with a new military aid package that, among other things, includes launchers for the IRIS-T SLS air defense system.

This follows from the updated list of military support for Ukraine, which has been published on the German government’s website, Ukrinform reports.

Germany handed over two such IRIS-T SLS launchers to Ukraine. Earlier reports said that two IRIS-T SLM air defense systems were already protecting Ukrainian airspace.

Germany is the second largest provider of military aid to Ukraine after the United States.
